I came across you on the forum, a fellow (fairly close) haunter. I'm about 3 hours West of you in Belleville. Checked out your haunt pics, looks great! I just do a little front yard display so I'm always in awe of the talents I see on this forum. All ready for the big day?
I am all right with motors. Frankly they are alot easier than you probably think. I've built a FCG, grave grabber, a lunging devil, a three headed tombstone peeper and a single tombstone peeper that I sent as part of my secret reaper package. I have the basic understanding of pneumatics but haven't built anything yet. I've only got one prop controller so it handles the devils for now. I am going to ask Santa for another prop controller for next year. My wife isn't into halloween so every time we take the kids to see Santa she whispers in his ear. I am pretty sure she's telling him I've been naughty because I never seem to get whats on my list. If there's something in particular that you want to build for next year let me know and we can work on it at some point. Some of time the toughest part is finding the right motor at a reasonable price.
I have no room to store pillars or a fence. If I did I would love to have some for my cemetary. If you add photos let me know when so I can check them out.
so far so good, just gotta make some pillars and a backwards spinning clock and im all set. ooooo animated devils! are you good with making animatronics? i need a teacher lol im terrible at mechanics. Yeah! the jumping spider at spirit is really sweet!
HEY, he told me he had sold most of the good stuff before I got there . When I looked through his photo album I didn't think I had missed much. He and I have different tastes. The bluckies will be cut up and used for the entrance to my garage. I want ther entrance to resembled the catacombs. My haunt is coming along nicely. The things I have left to do are: finish two hell holes (45 miurtes), animate two devils in the hell holes (2-3 hours), get clothing for a zombie or rejig the motor and frame so its smaller (??), improve some lighting. I also want to buy the jumping spider from Spirit. I'm getting there. I have the motors for the devils but it won't be horrible if they're static this year. All things considered I am pleased with the prorgess. Hows the plan for your apartment coming along?
Hey, you make it to the garage sale today???? I got there around 11:30. If you did let me know what you got. I picked up the blucky parts in the coffin. I didn't want the coffin. I got the two foggers and a mini strobe. Not bad for $28.00
